      This product will save me so much money on foundation. I often have to remove the oil from my skin making me reapply makeup. I have used this prime for the last five days & I only apply my 'Face' once a day. Very lightweight. LOVE IT!!!

      Comments about ULTA Matte Prime:

      This is great for sensitive or acne prone skin. It doesn't irritate my skin, nor do I break out, which is awesome. Only thing is it doesn't last very long. I use it under the Revlon ColorStay, but I am still oily within about 6 hours. Still a great product. Helps minimize pores and smooth overall appearance.

                  I have a oily tzone so I only apply this product on my tzone. This kept my foundation from getting oily.I hated when I took pictures later on in the night from sweating I looked like a oily mess. This definitely fixed that issue.

                        The previous Ulta primer was awesome, except for the pump. Is this the same primer just in a different container?

                        Can I use both this primer and the ulta bb cream together? Would that be better or should I just use one, and if yes which one primer or bb cream?

                          A:

                          Because BB Cream Beauty Balm SPF 20 provides priming benefits, you may wish to use it alone rather than layer it over a primer; however, if you have especially oily or blemish-prone skin, you can certainly layer Matte Prime underneath BB Cream to help keep skin mattified and shine-free, since Matte Prime is formulated with salicylic acid to treat acne and balance oil production.

                          Yes, this primer is noncomedogenic, meaning that it won't clog pores or cause breakouts. It works wonderfully for all skin types, especially oily and/or acne-prone skin!

                      • Q:

                        I have extremely oily skin and find that primers with silica in them tend to separate and make my skin even oilier. Will this primer do that on my skin?

                          A:

                          No, this primer is ideal for oily/very oily skin that is prone to breakouts, and it should not separate on your skin. Apply just a pea-sized amount to your entire face for best results. The salicylic acid and mattifying powders will help to keep your skin shine-free and to prevent breakouts and pore congestion.

                          ULTA brand products are never tested on animals. We do not claim that ULTA brand products are vegan, as some may contain animal-derived ingredients such as carmine. ULTA Matte Prime is not formulated with any animal-derived ingredients.

                          This product contains 1.5% Salicylic Acid, so if you're dry in some areas, we'd recommend applying a lightweight moisturizer underneath this product to further help balance your skin.
